No Impact Man has a very interesting post up. It's an open letter to a New York State senator that nearly squeezed said blogger with his car, and then calls the guy a F*&*ing A$$hole for objecting to being hit by a car driven by someone not paying attention to what's going on around them.
Hopefully this turns into an impassioned and intelligent discussion about responsibility on the road. You can slovenly drive your car, that's fine. But if you take that route, there are certain responsibilities, accept them, or take the bus. I personally would invite our legislators to join us in the pedal powered revolution, but...well, whatever.
Check out NoImpactMan's post. Engage in this discussion. The fundamental viewpoint about the bicycle and it's place in our transportation infrastructure is changing albeit slowly, but if we don't speak, it goes nowhere.
